Some variety: Most condoms range between 0.04 - 0.06 millimeters of thickness...Not sure what your pharmacist was talking about. There are several "ultra thin" condoms on the market that work well, supposedly have the benefit of more sensation for the male, and are considered "safe". Most important - use one! most condoms are outside of the pharmacy area - review them and try a variety. Good question!
